Make a Tiled Garden Container Planter for Frugal Upscale Decor

I had never tiled anything before but I saw a gorgeous tiled garden container that was $200 at an upscale nursery and knew I had to try to replicate the effect at home. In this post I transformed a $12 wooden garden container into a similar look for just another $50.
The gorgeous wood with the brown and golden tiles looked amazing with the fall perennials I added to the container. I was shocked how easy it was to put this whole thing together. Total of $62.
Time: 3 Hours Cost: $62 Difficulty: Medium

      @Miriam I Thanks! It was - meh - just plain wood. This made it so much dressier. In the sun it glimmers a little and is so pretty.

    Really great idea. Will you tell us where you bought the inexpensive wooden flower box? I have leftover tiles from a bathroom project I think I can use. I may have to do an abstract since some are large tiles, some medium and some glass like in the computer. Will be an interesting spring project.
